Well researched and presented without a political agenda. Boot has given the reader/listener a ringside view of US decision making in the post WWII era through the end of the century. As a young observer in Saigon 1965-67, this demonstrates the highest degree of veracity I have found.

First 5 chapters read like a geneology or actuary table, but once under way in earnest, we begin to get a sympathetic portrayal of an amazing man who is still teaching us today and who we are still ignoring. He was not a perfect man but his sincerity is undeniable and his goodness skewed and magnified by the -now- obvious rightness of his ideas.
What I really enjoyed was that at least 6 hours of the book surprisingly dealt with the Philippines and not only Vietnam and I was very interested in learning the history I thought I knew from letting it pass through the story of this one man and along the way, picking up mini biographies on countless names, known and lesser known, who have created the world we live in.
